    Look at it this way people. This is only a series I know y’all got all your eggs on the clippers nets etc. but just remember that this trail blazer team got to the WCF without their third best player. Now with no crazy warrior lineup or any of that bs, nothing is in this teams way. The clippers are a downgraded version of the warriors. Don’t get me wrong their a really talented team but don’t be surprised if this trail blazer team ended up really deep in playoffs

        Because if the teams best player is a point gaurd they WILL NEVER win in todays game. CP3 proved that for so many years even today

              He is one of the best NBA player.  He just need to leave Portland for something better to get more trophies. Cuz he doesn't no help here.

                    Idk I feel like everyone says whys he an underdog when we all dont think he is an underdog. To me he is mvp level.

                      he's a top player, but people treat him like he's average
                      how is that not under-rating?
                      Russ is WAYYYYYYYYYYYY over-rated, triple doubles are over-rated
                      there's a guy playing as Center, and another guy as PF, why a point guard needs to steal boards from them, and get an MVP award for doing that?

                        Still an underdog because of major media BIAS so as to pump-up larger-market teams. Money talks !

                            The only players that are seen as great are the ones that make an impact on the post season, and unfortunately DAME still hasn’t

                                "Small market team in Portland" you say?! I would argue there couldn't be a more loyal fan base and a sold out coliseum year after year. Rip City all the way! Check your attendance records

                                    Honestly, if he played in Boston, LA, Chicago, Philadelphia, or NY he would’ve already been a Superstar.

                                      and they are now overhyping him, i like lillard but being swept last post season while having home court advantage is a legit reason to doubt not only him but his whole team, he is just now redeeming himself

                                        Probably because Jrue Holiday and Rondo sent the nigga packing in 4 games last year.. yes the Pelicans swept a team in the playoffs 😂

                                          Hes the best PG right now. Steph is second, only coz he's in a stacked team, 3rd Kyrie. No question Dame is for real. Put him in the Celtics, for sure they wouldn't have had the issues they've had all season, coz Dame is a true leader, he's someone you will follow

                                                      he is way better than russ. Portland is small market.

                                                        Dame got swept last season, so you don’t have to look back that far to see why he doesn’t get credit. The Pelicans were good but if Lillard is supposedly top 3 at his positions, he should’ve owned Jrue.

                                                          The question everbody wants to know is,
                                                          Why'd they get this nigga started?
                                                          Damian, rather Dame Dolla, was not available for comment
                                                          But released this statement:
                                                          It's not about East or West
                                                          It's about niggas and bitches, power and money,
                                                          Riders and punks. Which side are you on?

                                                              He will always be an underdog because he is undersized. It’s that simple, look at how good Isaiah Thomas was for the Celtics. Another example is Allen Iverson, and even Nate Robinson. All the shorter guys have never gotten the benefit of the doubt. They where forced out of the league and didn’t retire on their own terms.

Plus he's not perfect, that sweep last year from the Pelicans was disgraceful
